    Cool Retaining giant

    Please,

    Can you tell me the meaning of retaining in a context on the selling of a company. The sentence says that a company was sold to a retaining giant.
    I infere this one is a trust or the like; am I right? Perhaps there are some nuances I don't catch...

    I think it can be a multinational company/ trust[ as you have already mentioned].
